Welcome to The GateStanding in stone since 1729, this large four bedroom cottage is a beautiful mix of old meets new. Rarely do you stumble across a cottage of such grand proportions, a vast family room, separate dining room, four large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a balcony with stunning views and a garage... all wrapped up in the most stunning and tasteful decor, truly showcasing the period features which the property will treasure for many more years to come.
Drive through the village and arrive home, there's plenty of on street parking and space for your car in the garage too. Up the garden path to your front door, matching beautifully with the wood effect window frames, step into the porch taking shelter as you hang up your coat and turn the key, opening up the double doors to be greeted into your sanctuary...
Dressed to PerfectionEnter into the living room, the walls dressed in Laura Ashley vines, plush grey carpets underfoot and a roaring log burning fire taking centre stage. Set in a stone feature wall and with a stone mantle, the soft furnishings around complement and soften, adding to the cosy feel of the room. And what a room it is, with its grand size your house would be the obvious choice for family gatherings, there's plenty of space for everybody to spread out and be included.
Through the wooden door and emerge in the dining room, a leafy wall print mirrors the image out of the cross window, adding a brightness to the room. In contrast the large stone flags underfoot add depth and are very practical when you have little ones getting creative at the dining table! A stone open fireplace draws attention as you dine, fill it with lanterns to add a comforting glow as you feast.
Through into the neighbouring kitchen, bright and traditional with its wooden carved cabinets and terracotta floor tiles, twin windows glimpsing outside as you handle the pots in the Belfast farmhouse sink. Get to work chopping your veg on the solid wooden counter tops, once prepped you can fire up the ultimate piece of equipment- a seven ring gas hob with a double oven, grill and warming tray beneath! Also integrated is a fridge and freezer and plumbing for a dishwasher, washer and dryer. After your feast you may be ready for a nap, take the staircase off the dining room and follow the red brick wall onto the upper level...
Time for a Bedtime StoryAll family members will sleep well in their own room, large doubles spaced out well along the long corridor. First to discover is the master suite, so cosy and with the most wonderful views dotted through its windows, like pictures hanging in their frames. This room oozes with character, from the wooden ceiling beams to the feature stone wall you can feel that you are within a piece of history. Double doors open up to let a breeze in as you dress, when you step out onto the balcony for your morning coffee you can enjoy the fresh country air and woodland trees as you look out. This room has one further delight, an en-suite bathroom to freshen up in! The shower has traditional fixtures and a red brick wall, beautifully teamed with an original wooden floor.
Step back into the landing and find two further doubles to the side of the house, with a large fourth double bedroom at the very end of the corridor to the front. The main bathroom servicing these bedrooms has stylish grey patterned floor tiles, tying in nicely with the glossy grey brick wall tiles. A bowl sink is set within a wooden rustic cabinet, with ample storage underneath for your fresh towels. The luxury bathtub also has an overhead shower, giving you the choice of a long relaxing soak or a quick freshen up to begin or end your day on the right note.
Bringing the Outdoors InThis lovely home hasn't got a garden as such, however if you are happy with rolling countryside as your back garden then don't let this put you off! There is a small lawn area to the front perfect for a summers day picnic, and off the grand bedroom a substantial balcony with ample room for some cosy furniture and views to die for! A small yard next to the garage works well for the tidy storage of your bins, tucked away at the rear of the property easily accessible and neat. The views from the bedrooms are of countryside and woodland trees so you will often feel that the outdoors has been brought into the home!
In a NutshellThe current owner has found this to be the most wonderful family home, telling us- ''When we first laid our eyes on this house we realised that you don't come across houses like this so often, it was a real find and has lived up to our expectations! It's full of character and always nice and warm from the log burner- it seems to heat up the whole house! The layout works really well for our family with the positioning of the bedrooms, we have privacy in our master bedroom at the end of the corridor and the kids are nicely spread out, all with large rooms too so there's no fighting! The nearby Wayoh was our savior during lock-down, we went for beautiful daily walks together as a family.''
